DARPA tackling reusable, modular chipset technology

Posted by in categories: computing, electronics

More information on DARPA’s efforts in build new interface standards for modular design & practical circuit blocks.


Is it possible to develop chip technology that combines the high-performance characteristics of ASICS with the speedy, low-cost features of printed circuit boards?

Scientists at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency this week said they were looking for information on how to build interface standards that would enable modular design and practical circuit blocks that could be reused to greatly shorten electronics development time and cost.

Why diamonds could be technology’s best friend

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, electronics

When we look at the huge tech and industrial revolution that is just on the verge of happening due to QC and Medical technologies; synthetic diamonds will be a central piece of this story. I hope Intel, Nvidia, HP, Xerox, Apple, etc. all are assessing how they can either produce or partner with producers of synthetic diamonds. Printer companies could be big players in the mass production story of Synthetic Diamonds; and partnerships between Intel and HP or Intel and Xerox could prove to be fruitful.


COULD synthetic diamonds be key to developing the advanced electronics of tomorrow? A company crowd-funding on Cambridge’s SyndicateRoom thinks so.

Evince is looking to raise £650,000 to develop a working prototype of its new semi-conductor, which it says has the potential to perform 100 times better than silicon.

IC wants sensors to evaluate personnel performance

Posted by in categories: electronics, wearables

Has anyone seen “The Yes Men” youtube video where they present to the WTO their proposed employee monitoring suit to ensure employees were working and performing while the supervisor is at the beach. This reminds me a little of that same scenario; except this time it’s the employees wearing the wearable monitor to measure & track their performance.


Working in the intelligence community can be stressful. The IC’s research arm wants to use sensors to evaluate how people respond to the demands of the job.

Terrifying Laser Bazooka Is Like a Handheld Death Star

Posted by in categories: electronics, energy

Ah, science. wink


In the right hands, broken electronics can be turned into something useful again. But useful isn’t the best way to describe Drake Anthony’s 200-watt laser bazooka made from a bunch of old DLP projectors he bought off eBay. Words like incredibly dangerous, do-not-try-this-at-home, or “are you crazy?” seem more appropriate.

Huge Cache of Ancient Helium Discovered in Africa’s Rift Valley

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, electronics

A “huge” stash of helium discovered in East Africa could ease a decades-long shortage of the rare and valuable gas.

Researchers in the United Kingdom and Norway say the newly discovered helium gas field, found in the East African Rift Valley region of Tanzania, has the potential to ease a critical global shortage of helium, a gas that is vital to many high-tech applications, such as the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scanners used in many hospitals.

The researchers say the discovery is the result of a new approach to searching for helium that combines prospecting methods from the oil industry with scientific research that reveals the role of volcanic heat in the production of pockets of helium gas. [Elementary, My Dear: 8 Elements You Never Heard Of].
